You Make The Grade!

Hi everyone!! Happy Sunday!!

Here is a card I created for this week's MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge, Hit The Books, !MFTWSC08182010!

For my card, I inked up the DARLING Pure Innocence You Make The Grade from My Favorite Things (which looks to be out of stock but I am sure will be back in soon!), and colored her with Copic Markers. I embossed the A+ on the blackboard with White Embossing Powder (it was a LONG time since I have used my embossing gun!).

All of the patterned paper is the new Mitten Weather from Cosmo Cricket (ALL of the new Cosmo Cricket papers are available @ Taylored Expressions!). I ADORE these papers and I think they are perfect for any project, not necessarily just for Christmas! I used two of the patterns to paper piece her sweater and little skirt too!!

I cut her out and popped her up with Foam Tape onto a piece of Mitten Weather that I cut and embossed with Circle Nestabilities. The scallops were created with the Die-Namics Jumbo Scallop Die and cut from Island Mist Medium. I then embossed them with, you guessed it, the Polka Dots Embossing Folder. A twill ribbon and bow created with my Bow Easy, as well as some Vanilla Brads by American Crafts, finish this one off!! I think I will save this and give it to my little one on her first day of school, which is fast approaching!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
